Powerstroke Technician in Franklin, GA

Anyone know of him or heard of him. I'm hearing there's a reasonably priced Powerstroke technician in Franklin, GA, I've searched and can't find him. He works at a dealership yet again I don't know which.

It's a crap shoot but maybe someone knows who I'm talking about and could forward me his contact info.


Thanks

I just know some mechanics down that way but no one I would really consider mainly Powerstroke....most of them are more general mechanics or specialize in gas stuff.

Let's start with this....

1) What do you have done currently to the truck? Is it completely stock?
2) What do you want to do to the truck?

I saw in the other thread you mainly want it as a family hauler / tow pig. Performance/Aftermarket wise, I would do the following:

Bulletproof the truck (Studs/Full EGR Delete/Updated STC Fitting/Dummy Plugs/Oil Cooler(if needed) )
Coolant Filter
Gauges (Analog or Edge Insight CTS)
SCT w/ some tunes

First priority is getting the truck running. I am on the go 16-18 hours a day 7 days a week so haven't had much time to work on the truck. At this point it will be more beneficial to have someone work on it. I know several general mechanics however would rather a Powerstroke tech work on it. The truck is stock for the most part just EGR delete and exhaust. I plan to keep it stock for the most part.

What's going on with the truck? Starting issues / idling issues / driving / etc.

Sounds like you've got a busy schedule so maybe we can figure some stuff out and get you going in the right direction.

I have not personally dealt with the guy but I've heard some not-so-good testimonies from ex-customers.

I wasn't speaking about him. I've heard some stories about him, some pleasant and some not so much. I remember reading about a $5,000 studs and head gasket job on a 6.0. My truck stalled the other day backing out of the driveway and hasn't started back up since.
